Robert Griffin III (Breaking Bybee)
QB Rank: 5
Overall Rank: 6
Acquired: Via Trade with Me (Originally drafted in the 10th round, 93rd overall)
Griffin was originally drafted as my backup QB. In fact Dad, took Philip Rivers ahead of him, giving me the chance to stash RGIII in the 10th round. Matt Ryan was on fire as well so I really had no use for Griffin so I traded him to Kenny in a package deal for Gronk. Kenny ended up using him as is primary QB, and though Kenny ultimately didn't make the playoffs, it's got nothing to do with Griffin's outstanding play. Griffin was the only rookie QB who got constant PT in our league (I started Andrew Luck for 3 or 4 games, but he was very mediocre when I did).
T.Y. Hilton (The Twin Killers)
WR Rank: 23
Overall Rank: 74
Acquired: Via Free Agency
This rookie receiving class was so weak, Hilton is the only receiver that makes the team. When injuries hurt Leland's team, Leland turned to Hilton and he paid off big time. Hilton proved to be more than valuable and helped Leland in his fantasy football championship win. No other rookie receiver made a significant impact besides Hilton.
Doug Martin (The Twin Killers)
RB Rank: 2
Overall Rank: 7
Acquired: 4th Round (39th Overall)
Most believed Doug Martin would make an immediate impact in fantasy football, but the 2nd best running back in the game? Didn't see that one coming at all. His 53 point performance is a Wane McGarity Bowl Season Record and again he was another reason why Leland won this year's coveted title. You can kiss any chances of him being a 4th round pick goodbye, he's solidified himself as probably a top 5 pick next season.
Trent Richardson (Channel 4 News Team)
RB Rank: 9
Overall Rank: 25
Acquired: 4th Round (34th Overall)
Trent Richardson made me look like a dumbass (admittedly not hard) because I honestly did not buy into the hype. I thought because of the division they play in, him being basically their only offensive weapon, and a knee injury, that he would be a big time bust. Nope, none of that happened. Richardson had a great Rookie Campaign. Double digit TD's and close to 1,000 yards rushing on a team that yep did not have anything close to a weapon on offense besides himself. Another 4th round steal, Richardson finished as a top 10 RB, and a top 25 overall player and it's not a coincidence that the two All Rookie Selections represented both teams in the Wane McGarrity Bowl Finals. Admittedly though, Richardson kinda got in by default, because Alfred Morris had a better season, but Matt really never used him (he had Marshawn Lynch and Arian Foster, so it's understandable) so he didn't qualify for this award.
Once again, there was no Tight End that qualified for All Rookie Status.
Wane McGarity Bowl Rookie of The Year
To the victor goes the spoils. Leland used Doug Martin basically all season and won the fantasy championship because of his contributions. That was enough to narrowly edge out RGIII for Fantasy Rookie of The Year honors.
